OK, I've been going back and forth on getting into the Lawn Care industry full time so I have to ask the most obvious question. I've posed this question many times to my wife, friends and family and it's the sticker, in my opinion, for the reason I have yet to dive head first into this business.... WHAT DO YOU GUYS WITH LAWN SERVICES IN THE MIDWEST (ILLINOIS, MISSOURI, INDIANA, OHIO AREA) DO FROM NOVEMBER-MARCH! I know there are many fringe jobs one can get once established like pruning, fertilizing, and the like but I just don't find those services feasible being a one man show with currently <20 accounts. And my wife suggested installing Christmas lights and decorations. Yikes! Plus I feel that there's just not the market for those here. I know that many are going to instinctively shout out, "SNOW PLOWING!" but I've already got a rebuttal for you! I have no interest in joining the "blade-on-the-front-of-my-4x4" crowd as, like I said previously, I'm a one man show. Residential accounts may be fine but the snowfall amounts in Central Illinois just aren't anything to get excited about unless you're a large snow removal company with many large commercial accounts. Being able to count on income from snow plowing would be very unpredictable. This site has been great for obtaining useful information since I first checked it out a few weeks back. Keep those ideas coming for me! Thanks a lot!
